The main differences between the Galaxy S3 and S4 in a table

In ordinary language do the above table so say the following: the Galaxy S4 is a lot faster than the S3, the screen is slightly larger, and the image is much sharper. The camera has a higher resolution, and a larger battery capacity. Furthermore, the Galaxy S4 particularly a feature is that the S3 does not have: the Gesture Air / Air View interface , making it possible to do many things without having to touch screen itself.


Yet it is important to mention that a lot of other new features of the Galaxy S4, like the eye control with features like Smart Pause and Scroll, later also at the Galaxy S3 will come. Special apps like the new S and S Voice Translator will later be available on the S3, and it would not surprise me if some of the new camera features of the S4 to S3 will come too.

Regarding the ‘core’ of a smart phone – call, email, browsing, watching videos, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp – there is little difference. Both devices are more than capable of this kind of activities on their slippers to perform.

Links to S4 are clearly larger screen

And so?

You could say that the Galaxy S3 and S4 are brothers: appearance, there are strong similarities , and eventually they can almost as much. What remains is of course much nicer screen S4, and the camera with higher resolution. Okay, and the extensive, gesture-based interface. And the pedometer and the thermometer . And infrared features . Hmm.

Actually my point that the Galaxy S3 S4 just has a much better screen and a better camera. In general this is true even if you keep in mind that many of the new features later to S3, and that both devices anyway very quick and pleasant work. But secretly is the list of options available to the S4 though, and the S3 has not yet properly.

Of course you see these differences reflected in the price of the equipment. The Galaxy S3 was at launch in May 2012 about the same price as the Galaxy S4 now. However, in one year’s price of the S3 already fallen quite a bit, so he’s a lot cheaper than the S4.
